Strathearn Harriers - New Year's Day Run 2014

Carnethy 5 hill race

Monday, February 13, 2017

The Carnethy 5 is one of Scotland's iconic hill races, run over the Pentland Hills south of Edinburgh. It sees the best Scottish hill-runners competing, with a decent representation from south of the border.

Three Harriers made the trip for the 2017 race, run in some of the most challenging conditions, with snow and strong winds putting paid to any ideas of record times. The men's race was won by Finlay Wild in a time of 52.50, while the women's race was won by Hannah Russell in 1.02.30.

Our three brave racers bunched well, with Emily Greaves heading the trio to finish in 1.15.08, (15th woman), with Ben Murphy in his first hill race performing well in 1.17.24 (95th) and Rhian Evans in 1.19.49 (28th woman)
